 Looking for a Database Connection Timer TSR ?

We've got a MS Windows/ODBC driver internals idea
that we need help determining feasability on ...

We're thinking of writing a TSR program that will
somehow look for activity on any open "connections"
between one or more local Visual Basic applications
and networked ODBC back-end databases (eg. Oracle, Sybase).  
The idea would be to check for activity and timeout
the connection if there is no activity for a given period.
The timeout operation would entail automatically closing
the connection and probably the application.

A TSR solution would be most general since the logic
would not have to be built into every application.
However, a VBX or DLL solution might also be acceptable
(and certainly somewhat more obvious to implement).

The question is whether this is technically possible ?

The second question would be if anyone has already done
something like this or if there's a commercial App that
provides this functionality ?

The last question is (assuming the answer to question 2 is no)
whether anyone out there would be interested in working with us
on this ?
